Bunions Foot Pain Treatment
People think of a bunion as being a growth on the side of the foot near the big toe; however, bunions go deeper than what we can see. A bunion actually reflects a change in the anatomy of the foot. Essentially, a bunion develops when the big toe begins to point toward the second toe. This eventually produces the growth on the inside of the foot.
What are the symptoms of bunions?
Many people do not experience any symptoms in the early stages of bunion formation. Symptoms are most often experienced when the bunion becomes more pronounced, or when the patient wears high-heeled shoes or shoes that crowd the toes.
When symptoms do occur, they may include:
• Physical discomfort or pain
• A burning feeling along the side of big toe
• Redness and swelling over the bunion
• Numbness along the side of the big toe
• Difficulty walking
What causes bunions?
